- Take potatoes cut it into half and boil/steam it for 5 – 7 mins.
- Peel the boiled potatoes and mash it roughly. The potatoes should be slightly firm yet cooked. Keep it aside.
- Heat oil in a pan, add the ingredients listed under “To Temper” and let the channa dal turn golden brown.
- Now add the boiled potatoes and mix it well. Let it cook for 2 mins.

- This dish goes very well with simple Rasam.
- You can add green chilli as per taste and preference.
- The amount of lemon juice can be adjusted as per taste. I like mine to be tangy, so I used to add the juice of 1 lemon.
